Good luck in your journey. I never really saw anyone quantify their journey exactly like you have But it is interesting to read.

The book made me, at many many times, look at myself and ask "Am I like Robin?" and "If so, how can I fix that?". Self-awareness is an important issue in society, and in our fast-paced world, even more so.
One of the things that has happened many times before, around finals, Christmas break is approaching, and stress is going through the roof, I typically have I what I have affectionately called "Core Meltdowns" where I end up just questioning everything; I mean EVERYTHING! And it usually begins and ends the exact same, it starts because all the short-term stuff starts to seem meaningless and scary, and it is resolved when I understand and stop and breathe and keep in my mind how all these small things add up to the big picture of things I want to get done. Then, the journey seems worth it.
That is really, I think the point of the quests: to prevent any future "Core Meltdowns" and discover what is really at my "Core". I know there is a lot of there that is important which is why I call it my "Core".
And aheads up for anyone still reading this thread, because this thread is mostly about self-development, as I get more used to my schedule and the quests becoming routine and more organic, the posts in this thread may become less frequent until they eventually stop. When they stop, I will know this idea of mine has worked its purpose because it will have become sufficiently routine enough.
An "organic routine" may not be so much f a paradox as I think it is. I will find out in time.
